    Manuel Perrine doesn't fear anyone or anything. A charismatic and ruthless leader, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suit. Detective Michael Bennett once managed to put Perrine behind bars, the only official in the US ever to accomplish that. But now Perrine is out, and he has sworn to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

    What made the experience of listening to Mightier than the Sword the most enjoyable?

    All of it. Great plot, great narrator, couldn't be better


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This is of course an ongoing story but yes it was intriguing


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many but revealing them would spoil the book for other readers


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. This book is as good if not better than the earlier books. Can't wait for the next one. Best seller!! Thank you Jeffrey Archer.
